1981.1985.

Yup, I'm a grinder when it comes to the shows. Give me a killer first set (even if it is short; hello 1985).

'81 ImhO was the year that Brent (regardless of what some may think of his playing) really started to groove with the band. The Nassau shows are a great example. Jerry is stepping it up a notch.

1985 - yes, 1985. Jerry was in sad shape at times. But without knowing that at the time, the shows were hot. I saw the East coast run in Spring and it is Energy X 10.
From Philly to Chula Vista to Hershey. Top year.
